[Opinion] If you have ever seen Mike Judge’s ‘Silicon Valley,’ perhaps the Russ Hanneman character reminds you of someone, a reality TV star. The rumor is that the Russ Hanneman character, played by Chris Diamantopoulos, is based on Mark Cuban.. Hanneman’s character can only be described with one word (excuse my language) he’s a ‘douchebag.’
Take a look at these clips of Hanneman’s character, allegedly portraying a caricature of Mark Cuban:
Mark Cuban has been a vocal critic of President Trump for years. Now look, I understand that some people find the way Trump comports himself in public abrasive and off putting. I would be lying if I said there were not certain things he does or says that I look at and think, ‘why, why would you do that.’ However, there is one thing that I can not forgive. Campaigning for Hilary Clinton.
Which is exactly what Cuban did back in 2016. The man who ‘put radio on the internet’ sold his soul, campaigning for the most corrupt political dynasty (shot out to the close runner ups, the Bush family) in modern America, The Clinton Crime Syndicate, has a lot to say about President Trump.
Did this self-righteous hypocrite call Donald Trump a ‘Jackoff?’ Perhaps he said ‘Jagoff’ … if that is even a thing. He has the balls to say Trump is crass and then calls him by a name that if I heard my kids say I would be mortified. Only a NPC would not see the hypocrisy.
Anyway, the virtue signaling, soul selling man with ‘tres comas’ recently appeared on the pod case of a ‘Real House Wife of New Jersey,’ and took the opportunity to tell the country how dumb President Trump is.
Fox News reported:
“Look, personally I don’t have a problem with the guy,” Cuban said. “Now professionally as the president, I think he’s an idiot. You know, I never thought he was smart in talking to him.
“He said to me one time, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to win, but you should run for president someday,’” Cuban added. “He actually was the first person to ever tell me to run for president. But I just didn’t get the sense that he thought he would win. I heard from people close to him he didn’t think he would win either.”
The reality TV star went no to explain his take on why he thinks people vote for President Trump, Mark explained: “One of my friends in Texas explained it to me best when I said, ‘Look, I know this guy, he’s not smart. He only cares about himself. He’s going to put himself ahead of the country, which effectively is what he’s done. I said, ‘Why are you voting for him?’
“He goes to me, ‘I’ve been voting for politicians my entire life. You know what they’ve done for me? Nothing. You know the definition of insanity. I’m not voting for a politician.’
While I disagree with Cuban’s assessment of Trump’s motivations, I do think a lot of people voted for Trump the first time around because he is an outsider. He is not a lawyer, he’s not a parasite that feeds that the festering wound of our great nation, the public treasury. He does not tear things down in order to eat, he builds things and creates opportunities for people in the process. The exact opposite of what HRC, or 98% of the people in DC do.
Cuban was right about one thing when he said “I don’t think [Trump] created a movement. I think he found a movement and rode it.”
This is an important point too. First there was the Tea Party. I remember being in college when the Tea Party began and for the first time in my life feeling like taking back our government from the authoritarians was possible. It did not take long for the Tea Party to be co-opted and destroyed by the Neocons.
Out of it’s ashes Donald Trump appeared, pitching an America First narrative and his message resonated with patriots who were sick and tired of never-ending wars, never-ending taxes and never-ending growth of the federal government and career conmen calling themselves ‘politicians.’
It is important we remember that even though Trump is currently the head of our movement to take American back from the elite and the globalists, he is still but a man. After his next 4 year term, the biggest challenge that lies ahead of us is finding the next torch bearer.
We can not allow a Neocon or RINO to be the nominee in 2024. We can not trust the progress Trump has made in his efforts to separate us from the global consolidation of political power be eroded away to nothing. We must remember that it was you and I that created this populist revolution and it is you and I who must choose it’s next leader, not the GOP establishment.
Fox News went on to close the piece by stating:
‘Cuban said that he and Trump had a falling out once. He said that he’s known Trump for more than two decades as an entrepreneur and businessman, but once he talked to him more, he said it “was just clear he wasn’t somebody who learned about anything.”
“When he first started to run, I said Donald Trump is the best thing to happen to politics because he speaks his mind,” Cuban said. “He’s not a politician. I had no inkling that he might win. And so we would talk all the time after I said that, because I was supporting him. Because again, I didn’t think he would win. And then as I started talking to him more about things, I asked him questions about real estate and he didn’t really understand the financial side of real estate. … That’s where we kind of had our falling out.”‘
Donald Trump doesn’t understand the financial side of real estate says the man who put radio on the internet. Well, with billions of dollars and some of the most coveted properties on the entire planet, I hope to one day understand as little about real estate as President Trump does …
